Nexus 7 to iPhone4 with Bluetooth tether
The wifi hotspot is not available on my non-jailbreaked iPhone 4 and I am looking for a way to connect my nexus 7 to iPhone. Trying the DiscoRecorder app but it requires an adhoc network. When I pair them to connect via Bluetooth, iPhone shows the Nexus 7 is not supported error. Is a way to tether over bluetooth? Any suggestions?
* I have an iPhone 4s with a data sharing plan and can connect them via bluetooth tether my iPhones data.
On your iOS device, make sure you have enabled hotspot and bluetooth in the Setting. Then make your handset discoverable in the bluetooth setting.
On your N7, touch Settings 》 bluetooth 》 select your iPhone name to start pairing. Then go to accept the pairing on iPhone.
Turn WiFi OFF on your nexus and touch paired devices. Both of devices will connect via Bluetooth.
* I have also jailbroke my iphone 3GS and use the MyWi app from Cydia. Everything works fine.
